Kamana Sanctuary/OWT & WW


We were driving around Subic one Sunday afternoon when M asked if we wanted to go to Kamana Sanctuary.  I relished being just a passenger that weekend and told M to just take us anywhere she wanted to go.  

Kamana Sanctuary is a fairly new resort in Subic Freeport, nestled between a rainforest and Nabasan Bay, and overlooking Grande Island and Subic mountains.


There was only a short stretch of beach so the main attraction here must be the eternity pool.  The casitas (rooms on stilts) looked interesting.  We wanted to see the rooms but we were told at the reception that the resort was fully-booked.  We chilled by the pool, sipped fresh fruit shakes, enjoyed the cool breezes and the view.


There is a spa here but I guess it's not open just yet.  I am actually more interested in the spa than the pool or the beach.  This is not my kind of beach resort.  Besides, their room rates are expensive.  I'd rather go to an island and sleep under the stars.:p


However, I'd say this resort is a good weekend getaway...just a short, easy 2-hour drive from Manila and there are lots of things to do in Subic.  And according to M, Kamana Sanctuary serves good food---that's a plus in  my book.:p


Kamana Sanctuary is inside the Subic Freeport, a former US naval base.  Subic Freeport is about 2 hours from Manila via SCTEx.

Looks like a nice (and expensive) resort. I'd be more interested in the spa as well. That is luxury.

it's simply divine. i would love to stay in the casitas, those are the things i like and the spa too. but i'm afraid to ask about the prices. places like this don't come cheap.
